how much biden was aggressive, trying to put ryan on the defensive and i think did sort of control the agenda of the debate, if you will, enforcing, and forcing ryan to be on the defensive but it is interesting, they both seemed to have separate game plans, the ryan folks got the impression that biden was going to throw everything at them and boy did he, i don't think he left anything out there and even got the phrase forcible rape in there, 47 percent, you name the detrimentally blue meat if you will rather than calling it red meat and biden threw it and ryan and ryan took the bait a couple of times but didn't take it a lot, i agree with john i think the abortion issue was probably the one opening there, if you are looking at where detrimentallies are going to try to democrats are going to try to drive a wedge, there is scinating and a lot of chatter and republicans and mitch mcconnell on nbc, immediately .. tried to compare biden to al gore and the size, one thing you say if that is the first thing republicans are spinning, that's a little bit of a tell right, kind of at poker th

on the consulate in libya clearly put the president, at least to some degree on defense. >> no doubt about it. if you look at our polling in recent weeks, for example, on the question of who do you trust more to handle foreign policy? the president had a small dip. 352% say they trust him more. 41% would trust mitt romney. that's down for the president from 54% back in september. so clearly that terrorist attack in benghazi has had some effect. that is why mitt romney sees an opening here. he's trying to pounce on it. but the bottom line is even with that dip, the president has a double digit lead over romney in terms of foreign policy handling. >> ed henry live with us. thanks very much. next up, the running mates, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan set to face off this thursday. danville, kentucky. look at that mug shot. we'll be there. megyn and brett will host the vice presidential debate for us here on fox news channel. just right before 9:00 o'clock eastern time, 8:00 o'clock central here on fnc. the outbreak of rare form of meningitis infected more than 105 people. a t
words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being deeply cut off, when we have no trade agenda to speak of, and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. host: that was mitt romney yesterday. it garnered a headline in "usa today" -- how much of the speech was against president obama and what he's done and how much of it was laying on his own trajectory and agenda? guest: mostly in his role as a challenger, this is about a critique of the obama foreign- policy. that's a very common tactic by challengers. he talked about hope is not a strategy. he's trying to emphasize his critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advise
